Inaccuracy of Sensory Data
Senses enhance the brain and make the connection with one’s thought process. Senses are linked to our brain and deliver data to our brain consistently; our senses may not always deliver the correct data to our brain due to the barriers that may block the effectiveness of the sensory and brain activity. For senses to perform accurately, a person must be well rested and healthy to receive a valuable sensory. The sensory of vision may produce inaccurate data because things are not always as they seem. People who are intoxicated cannot depend on their senses to make a proper decision because the alcohol consumption alters their mind and inhibits the brain to make a smart choice.

Reality may be based on one’s interpretation of what our senses portray to be in existence. Since there is no uniform sensory analysis that is for all individuals, it is safe to assume that different people do not share the same reality. Many people at times choose to believe what they are told exists purely based on faith, and they never experience or validate. Everyone has a unique sensory input capability; many people have different variations of their genetics, this can increase or reduce the way their senses perform. People who have bad vision can trick the mind to think differently because it is taking what they see and interpreting it incorrectly. A variation of our senses makes our brain process our perception of reality in our own way but may be viewed by others in the wrong way. There is a restriction in knowledge of reality, based on the restriction of one’s flesh. A good example is while comparing humans with animals.
